[audiobook] Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales: The Lion, The Hare and the Hyena (Excerpt)

"The Lion, the Hare, and the Hyena is a story from Nelson Mandela's Favorite African Folktales.Net proceeds will benefit the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund, a nonprofit organization founded by Mr. Mandela in 1995 to improve dramatically the way South African society treats its children; and ANSA, which works in the U.S. and South Africa to combat HIV/AIDS, provide comprehensive assistance to children orphaned by HIV/AIDS, advance human rights, educate and empower at-risk youth, and build bonds between both nations through arts, culture and the shared pursuit of social justice.Both organizations are working to address the impact of the AIDS pandemic on children in South Africa, which has more people living with HIV/AIDS and more children orphaned by the disease than any other country.All the individuals and companies involved in the effort have donated their services to allow a maximum amount of proceeds to benefit the charities. In addition to waiving sales and distribution fees, Hachette Audio will donate 100% of proceeds to ANSA and NMCF, and NB Publishers has waived fees so additional royalties can benefit NMCF. The audiobook is manufactured by Ivy Hill/Cinram, which is donating a significant portion of their services. The actors, creative director, engineers, graphic designers, attorneys, and recording studios fully donated their services, as did three-time Grammy-winner Gavin Lurssen, who mastered the audiobook." -- iTunes Store
